Event Details

The Astor Theatre and Sugar Mountain Present – TALKING HEADS: STOP MAKING SENSE.

The Astor Theatre is teaming up with Sugar Mountain to showcase a special screening one of the most iconic concert films ever made, Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense.

This special session will kick off at 7pm and feature a pre film set by local DJ duo 6AM at the Garage, spinning tracks that complement the inventive and creative artistry of Talking Heads.

From 7.30pm, presented in a new 2K DCP remaster, STOP MAKING SENSE captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads, all documented in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983.

The band's front man, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band's hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.

This is a “once in a lifetime” chance to experience this seminal work on the Astor’s SuperScreen and massive sound system.
